David Balkaran, a 41-year-old Security Guard, was charged with wasteful employment of police time, after he falsely reported a robbery to Chaguanas Police.
On November 10th, 2020, Balkaran reported that he was robbed at gunpoint along Eleanore Street, Chaguanas, the previous day. Balkaran further reported that he was relieved of $500 cash, a pack of cigarettes, one slice of watermelon, and a piece of bread pudding by an armed man of stocky build, dark brown in complexion with a goatee.
Officers of the Chaguanas Criminal Investigations Department (CID) conducted investigations into David Balkaran’s report. He later confessed to fabricating the entire incident.
Balkaran was charged on November 26th 2020 by WPC Orosco and will appear before the Chaguanas Magistrates’ Court today.
